30th Pauree May 2nd, 2015


As a woman we have the power to create our lives as we want them; yet we divest ourselves of that power every day. Each time we put ourselves down, each time we compare ourselves to other women, each time we complain, we lose power. The most challenging part of this 3HO way of life for women is accepting our power. I know that sounds strange, but to really accept that your life looks the way it looks because of the choices you've made; and that if you want to change, you have the power to change it? That's a lot of responsibility! And most of us shy away from that kind of power, that level of accountability. But within this simple step of acceptance lies the key to freedom.
Yogi Bhajan said the key to understanding a woman's power lay in the words of the 30th pauree; that if a woman meditated on these words, she would begin to understand the mystery and the mastery of being a woman.
“There are three things which work for you: Sopurkh, Bhand Jamee-ai and the basic root in which woman becomes woman, which is Ekaa Maa-ee Jugat Viaa-ee [the 30th Pauree]. Those three things are your totalities and this is your reality.”

All three of these shabads are available on my forthcoming album, The Pearl: Maiden, Mother, Crone. I'll write more about each in the coming days.
But for now, understand that as a woman you are the beginning of the beginning and your essence as the Divine Feminine is behind everything and watching over everything. We are the creators and the caretakers. We are the stewards of the good and the godly and the graceful.
This track has the recommended 11 recitations of this pauree along with a refrain of Adays Tisai Adays. Enjoy it and through it come to know your true nature as a woman.
